April 15 2009 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, itís Wednesday, a chance to pop in and say hello. Weíve had the most wonderful rain here over the past few months which have just about taken us out of an eight year drought, and has caused our dams to go from 17% full (or nearly empty) to 60% full. Thank heavens. We have had the most stringent water restrictions that meant that we were unable to hose the garden AT ALL excepting with a bucket, and in a window time limit of a half hour per week. Naturally many keen gardeners were absolutely heart broken to see their beautiful tropical gardens waste away, so this recent rain has been wonderful for them. I had one very keen gardener say to me yesterday that if she stood quietly in her back garden, she could hear the garden quietly humming to itself!!

Well, I finally got my act together and posted my first Quilt Quiz Questions and Answers. I had fun putting it together and have received some very funny emails regarding the quiz. I hope you enjoyed participating in the Quiz and Iíll work at putting another one together a little later in the year. Hereís the link to the articles:http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art10169.asp

This week I received some help from the quilters on the Bellaonline Forum, after I asked for help on behalf of a quilter who had emailed me with a question I wasnít able to answer. Thanks for your response Sara, it was very thorough and helpful.

Quilters, thatís what the forum can be used for; if you have any questions or are puzzled by a certain technique, do go to the forum and post your question. Thereís so many knowledgeable quilters who regularly post on the forum. You are bound to get the help youíre seeking. Hereís the link to the forum.http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43


So, onto my pressy for you this week: Rain is the word on everybodyís lips where I live so hereís some links to all sorts of subjects about rain. Enjoy!

I do hope youíre all well and keeping happy, and that the mice at your place come running from your larder with a full belly!!

Cheerio for now
